New Rewards Scheme Launched for New Territories Track Bikers

New Territories Cycling Track Launches CT60+ Scheme Across 60-Kilometre Route

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the declaration of Hong Kong as a Special Administrative Region, the New Territories Cycle Track Network (NTCTN) is launching a rewards scheme for eager bikers to win special souvenirs by way of exploring its scenery and culture-packed trail and “checking in” as part of the event.

Bikers can visit the designated “check-in spots” along the cycle track network. Those who reach a certain number of spots can show their records to trade for some limited-edition rewards. Each check-in location also features a QR code, which will display AR filters of government mascots to take photos with.

Newly minted in late 2020, the NTCTN connects the neighbourhoods of Tuen Mun and Ma On Shan, passing through the areas of Yuen Long, Sheung Shui, Fan Ling, Tai Po, and Sha Tin along the way. The track connects existing cycling trails with new ones, linking them into a 60-kilometre-long mega-trail, in addition to an additional 22-kilometre section across Tsuen Wan between Tsing Tsuen Bridge and Bayview Garden.

Taking place in two phases, the first run is between Sept. 17 and Oct. 31 and encompasses the sections of the trail stretching from Sheung Shui to Ma On Shan and the Tsuen Wan waterfront. Starting from Nov. 1 until Dec. 17, the second phase will involve check-in spots along Tuen Mun and Ma On Shan, also inclusive of the Tsuen Wan waterfront.
